Speed Shop Design

The other day I was over checking out my friend Chris's new project at Speed Shop Design. Chris won the LA Calender Moto Show this year with his last bike. Chris design's everything from scratch on his projects except for the motor including the suspension, the brakes, lights etc etc. He starts out with a drawing then each part of the bike is made piece by piece by hand. A few months ago he showed me the drawing of the bike and now it's all coming together .. very inspiring. The new bike is all top secret but he let me take some photos of some of the details. Thanks Chris!

Brat Style

From what I understand this bike was completely put together using off the shelf parts that Gou sells at Brat Style.

Everything you see in brass: gas tank, oil tank, fender was hand rolled from brass sheet not to mention the controls..carved as well from brass. Amazing.

Meg and Okun

Two of my favorite people I got to meet in Tokyo. Okun and Meg. They put you in a good mood just being around them. Okun let me ride his shovel .. which was fun until I needed to turn and realised the bars were hitting my knees.

much needed repairs and changes..

Finally got around to pulling my front head and cylinder to see what's going on in there and make some repairs. .I found this Magneto for real cheap at the Mooneyes Xmas party.. so cheap Kim that I figured I ought to buy it. It's got a few issues like most of my cheap shit but nothing that can't be fixed. Now I can ditch the battery and make a new seat that wont have clearance issues with the battery.

Chabott Knuckle

A few months back I got to see this Chabott Knuckle being built. I promised I wouldn't show the photos till it was done.. well since Ayu has shown photos of it I hope it's alright now. This bike makes me happy just looking at it.
